  1. I'm trying to get into yoga. I recently got a subscription to Beachbody's VOD service so I'm trying out their 3 Week Yoga Retreat program: https://www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_programs/3-week-yoga-retreat-beginners.do So far it's been pretty enjoyable. I'm not a flexible person at all so it was tough going to start, but at the end of the first week I feel like I'm really starting to see some improvement in my form.
  2. He's been one of the highest-earning entertainers in show business for the last 20 years...
  3. You didn't do anything wrong. She was probably just feeling a little pressure/embarrassment that she wasn't prepared and expected hostility from a stranger instead of kindness. You keep doing your thing!
  4. Anyone else trying to shed some extra weight before the Holiday? I started 2016 off really well, but after some personal issues I really let myself slip and have since packed on quite a few pounds. I've been telling myself to let it go until Christmas is over, but I'm dreading the idea of looking huge in all the family photos. I've got just about enough time to start a round of 21 Day Fix: https://www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_programs/21-day-fix-simple-fitness-eating.do, so I'm hoping I can at least shed a little of this extra weight before then. Anyone else trying to slim down? Maybe we can have get some kind of accountability thread going?
  5. Another vote for dry shampoo! If you have a grease issue in the mornings putting some in before bed can often help alleviate some of those issues!
  6. My DH and I have a rule about balancing out practical gifts with thoughtful/romantic ones. I would talk to him about it. He should have already picked up on this by now, but I think communicating your feelings in important. He'll never learn or change if you don't try to make him see things your way.
  7. I think you're being incredibly selfish. You want to limit your son's experience because you feel bad about it? This has nothing to do with kids being entitled. You're clearly just jealous that you aren't keeping up with the Jones' and you are willing to make your son miss out on a memorable experience because of it. He's lucky to have been invited on such a fun trip with his friend and I think it would be really unfair of you to take that away from him for literally no good reason other than your own hurt feelings.
  8. It's such a shame to see how prevalent this problem is. All I can hope is that some positive change comes from all of the pain these victims have endured.
  9. You need a subscription to Beach Body on demand, but I've learned a ton from their show Fixate: https://www.beachbody.com/product/fitness_programs/fixate-cooking-show-healthy-weight-loss.do
  10. This is great advice. NOTHING against those breeds, they are amazing dogs who are great with kids that often get a bad rap, but they are intended for more experienced owners. I would strongly recommend another Lab or a Golden Retriever for your family. Both breed are notoriously mellow, great with kids and can be fierce protectors when they need to be (our Golden woke us up in the middle of the night to stop our NEIGHBOR from getting robbed and you should have heard the snarl that came out of him that night). To answer your question about resources, I can't recommend the "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan enough. Some people have criticized his methods, but I think they're nuts to be honest. I had always been a dog person, but I learned SO much from him about dog psychology and how to better communicate my needs and wants to my dog. Ultimately your dog wants to please you and if you can effectively teach them what you want from them (and reward them of course) they are usually happy to comply.
  11. Ooof that's a tough lesson to learn, but it's good to learn it now. I understand her frustration, but you're right to want to gently remind her this is her fault for being careless. Don't let her have to learn this lesson twice.
  12. I definitely don't think $75 sounds like enough. $150 seems like a pretty reasonable number, but I might go as high as $200 TBH. Money doesn't go as far as it did when we were in school, and from it sounds like she isn't being exorbitant, just doing some normal college kid stuff.
  13. I think as some PPs have pointed the biggest thing is not making this a battle for territory. Crookshanks is likely feeling like this new kitten is here to take his space rather than share it. Make sure there are extra litter boxes, places to get water, and even adding new cat furniture or shelves for them to utilize will likely relieve a lot of tension. If you can, try to get them to eat together so they get used to being vulnerable around one another. This can often make a big difference. Make sure you're giving them both a lot of exercise so that they aren't on edge and ready to fight too! If all else fails, my vet recommend me a cat pheromone called Feliway when my new cat was having anxiety problems. I've never used it but they also have one specifically for tense multi-cat homes that might help: https://www.feliway.com/us/Feliway-MultiCat Good luck! I hope this works out for you all.
